Abstract:ABSTRACT: In recent years, diversification of energy dependence on foreign oil has attracted the use of alternative fuels such as the Fischer-Tropsch jet fuels and hydro-treated renewable jet fuels. However, there are combustion stability issues with alternative fuels in the aircraft engines… more
Abstract:We propose to build a two-dimensional multi-pixel infrared detector based on rectenna technology. The rectennas comprise of a micro-antenna tuned to terahertz reception and an integrated Metal-Insulator-Metal diode. This system captures infrared radiation, rectifies it and converts it to a direct… more

Abstract:ABSTRACT: The objective of this effort is to develop a flexible, modular ladar processing architecture and advanced algorithms suitable for direct digital processing of high-bandwidth ladar pulses using ultra-high speed, real-time signal processing. The primary applications for this technology… more
Abstract:In the Spallation Neutron Source, the mercury in the stainless steel target vessel experiences cavitation due to intense pressure waves produced by the almost instantaneous heating of the mercury following proton impact on the target. To protect the vessel walls from cavitation erosion, helium… more
Abstract:The propeller cleaning system developed in this project uses DYNAFLOW"s advanced cavitating and resonating waterjet technology. This non-abrasive technology uses the growth and collapse of cavitating microstructures in the submerged jet over the fouling to remove it. In Phase I, we successfully… more
Abstract:Metal-Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) epitaxial processes are used to deposit the GaN, InGaN, AlGaN and other wide band-gap semiconductor thin films making up the buffer, quantum well, and cap layers of the next generation high- brightness LEDs (HB-LEDs) for… more
Abstract:Resources available through the System F6 cluster can greatly simplify a participating spacecraft"s design. Our proposal encompasses three innovations: (1) Common Application for Sensorcraft Missions (CASM), an application that will be installed on the System F6 cluster to manage the… more
Abstract:Emergent Space Technologies proposes to develop a flexible, service-oriented Fault Management (FM) architecture for cluster fight missions. This FM architecture will include algorithms to be run on each cluster module for fault detection, isolation, and recovery, software to be used at a ground… more
Abstract:NASA seeks Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs) for Earth science data collection for missions with variable durations, operating proximities, altitudes, and environmental conditions. Of particular interest is the Ice Bridge mission, which takes observations in support of Arctic and Antarctic research… more
Abstract:To solve the problem of autonomous navigation on small satellite platforms less than 20 kg, we propose to develop an onboard orbit determination receiver for small LEO satellites which lack stable Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS), continuous GPS coverage, or ground tracking. The… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A holistic RSO space situational awareness algorithm will be developed that integrates Finite Set Statistics (FISST) with Hiearchical Mixtures of Experts (HME) and Multiple Model Adaptive Estimation (MMAE). Advanced orbit determination filters such as Splitting Gaussian Mixture Unscented… more
Abstract:Simulations that connect to testbeds are frequently used in space operations testing. Many of these testbeds have characteristics that are desirable to others in the field, but they are geographically distributed across the nation. The ability to connect multiple, remote testbeds to a single core… more
Abstract:There are many data intensive mission payloads for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) that collect more data than is practical to transmit through the downlink. The ability to autonomously process and classify this data on board can significantly reduce the downlink bandwidth… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The main objective of this task is to demonstrate that multiple systems with assorted architectures within the DoD can share data to better enable Warfighter Tasking. As opposed to manually transferring data products through high latency means like Microsoft PowerPoint or Word documents… more
Abstract:This research considers combinations of emerging technologies to provide an advanced warhead to be used in a C-RAM role. The warhead is used as a counter measure to attack and detonate incoming mortar rounds at safe distance from friendly troops. The warhead produces enhanced blast waves of such… more
Abstract:This project involves research and development of an instrument capable of rapidly distinguishing between counterfeit and authentic semiconductor components.

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
